I had been considering breast augmentation on and off for many years
but only felt comfortable going through with the procedure when I met
Dr Engler and his staff. I am a very nervous patient but as soon as I
was at Dr Engler's office I felt totally relaxed and at home. My
initial consultation was very helpful. I knew that I wanted a natural,
small implant to improve shape not increase size dramatically. I am
fairly small and slim so I would not personally be comfortable with
large breasts. Dr Engler totally understood what I was hoping to
achieve and clarified all the details, making me feel calm and
confident about going ahead with the procedure without feeling under
any pressure. I went home and took some time to think about it but I
knew that Dr Engler was the man for the job.

Once I made my final decision and called to book a surgery date the
staff were amazing and beyond helpful. Although I was very nervous on
the morning of the surgery, as soon as I got to the office I was
immediately put at ease by Arlene, Dr Engler's fabulous receptionist
who somehow calmed my nerves. Dr Engler talked me through what he was
going to do, again making sure I was feeling confident, informed and
relaxed. I am also particularly nervous about anesthetic but the
anaesthesiologist was also great and talked me through everything very

I woke up feeling groggy but calm! All the staff were checking on me
and being fantastic. My recovery was very easy and practically pain
free. Dr Engler rang me every day for the first week post-surgery to
make sure everything was ok, he is such a kind and attentive Doctor.

A week after the procedure I went back to Dr Engler to have my
dressing removed. My new breasts already looked so good after just one
week! Once again Dr Engler and all his staff made me feel like I was
with friends! I left feeling confident and so pleased with my results.

Three weeks after surgery I am already so happy with my results, Dr
Engler was able to achieve exactly what I wanted. The whole experience
could not have gone any smoother. I had rhinoplasty a few years ago in
Los Angeles with another surgeon and honestly Dr Engler and his team
were infinitely superior, I would definitely recommend him to anyone
considering surgery.
